Directors' Cup Standings ...

We come close, but Stanford clinches it for eleventh straight year.  Here is the most up to date standing for the best college athletic programs in the country for 04-05:

Here is Palo Alto Online News(don't see anything in So. Cal. papers):

The Cardinal currently has a total of 1,209.25 points, surpassing runnerup UCLA by 135.25 points. Stanford won its 11th straight Directors' Cup with national championships in women's volleyball and women's tennis and runnerup finishes in men's and women's water polo plus and men's swimming.

Texas may be climbing up the list since they are currently in Omaha for college world series, but not sure if they are going to pass us.  We look secure in that second spot for now.  We won our titles in men's and women's water polo and men's tennis, and also bunch of second and top-10 finishes in hold host of other olympic sports. Here is the official word (via BruinBlitz):
UCLA won NCAA team titles in men's water polo, women's water polo and men's tennis. The Bruins also finished second in five other sports -- women's soccer, men's volleyball, women's golf, softball and women's outdoor track and field (tied). UCLA finished fourth in the nation in women's gymnastics, reached the NCAA quarterfinals in women's volleyball, tying for fifth place nationally, and also tied for ninth in the NCAA in both women's tennis and men's soccer. The Bruins placed 18th in women's swimming and 20th in women's indoor track and field. In addition, the football team played in a bowl game for the third straight year and the women's rowing Varsity Eight made its first NCAA appearance since the program was restored in 2001-02.
Of course Dorrell and co. contributed ZERO points to the whole effort. They got us a true moral victory against USC.
